Tire age limit?

I have on a set of Dunlop Wintersport 3D's that are in their 5th year of winter use. The tires have very low mileage; not even close to the wear bars. They are kept covered in the garage during non-winter months.

Does anyone know if there is an age limit to these tires? Can I keep using them year after year as long as they're safely above the wear bars? I would imagine as the years go by the rubber ages and would start to break down.

Thanks in advance.
